Filmmaker Embedded in Caravan Gets to the Truth. Migrants Themselves Expose US Media as Total Liars


Reported By Malachi Bailey } November 15, 2018 at 2:16pm

A filmmaker traveled to Mexico and did what the U.S. media didn’t do: he witnessed the migrant caravan for himself and exposed the truth.nFilmmaker Ami Horowitz went to Oaxaca in southern Mexico to uncover the truth about the migrant caravan.

The caravan, consisting of thousands of Honduran illegal immigrants, has caught the attention of the media as it heads toward the United States. However, much of the coverage consists of hand-waving from the left-wing establishment media, which claims the caravan consists of peaceful families just trying to escape violence.

After visiting the caravan for himself, Horowitz came to a different conclusion.

“Despite the framing of the caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different. Approximately 90 to 95 percent of the migrants were male,” Horowitz said in a Twitter video.

Last month, BBC wrote that “The migrants, mostly from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence and poverty, and include women and children.” That’s a grossly misleading statement for a caravan consisting of over 90 percent men.

The establishment media also continuously repeated the narrative that the caravan is made up of people seeking to escape violence.

“We do know that many migrants have said they are fleeing terrible gang violence, with some fearing for their lives,” The Guardian claimed last month.

However, Horowitz discovered that the migrants are actually seeking employment when they illegally enter the United States.

“The major narrative being pushed by the press has been that the migrants are leaving Honduras because they are facing extreme violence and that their lives are under constant threat,” Horowitz said.

To discover if this was true, the filmmaker asked several migrants, “Why are you coming to America?”

“To get a job,” one responded. “To work,” said another.

It’s clear that these migrants, who are mostly male, are economic migrants seeking American jobs. They aren’t “women and children who are “fleeing violence.”

It’s completely absurd that the truth had to come from a filmmaker investigating the caravan for himself because the establishment media is too busy peddling lies and misinformation.

As both parties scrutinize the vote count in Florida’s Broward County, with the state’s gubernatorial and senatorial races closing in on a tie, Sen. Marco Rubio said the county’s elections office has a history of malfeasance.

“This is at a minimum a pattern of incompetence. Voters deserve better,” the Florida Republican said Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“This is not even a partisan thing. This is a county that apparently cannot even count votes as well as a county that just got wiped out by a hurricane.”

The state’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott filed a lawsuit Thursday against Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes for allegedly refusing to tell them about votes she has not yet counted. The vote totals Snipes tabulated two days after the election would have readers believe that more people cast votes for agricultural commissioner than for U.S. Senator.

Additionally, lawyer Marc Elias of Perkins Coie — who hired Fusion GPS for the Democratic National Committee to investigate Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election — has been hired to litigate a recount on behalf of Democrats.

The Republican National Committee also pointed out 12 times news stories using its own headlines where Snipes has “been outright incompetent and possibly criminal”:

CNN Chyron: Mail Bomb Recipients Are ‘Trump’s Targets’


Reported by Justin Caruso |

A CNN chyron aired Thursday said Democrats who received mail bombs this week are “Trump’s targets” — hours after an anchor insisted “no one’s blaming the president.”

“Manhunt For Serial Bomber Going After Trump’s Targets” read the CNN chyron at about 1:13 PM. This came after another chyron that also referred to those targeted as “Trump Targets.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ended the segment by saying, “The one common thread between all of these bombs–all of those who are being targeted are President Trump’s frequent punching bags.”

This segment came mere hours after CNN’s John King opened up a panel discussion by stating: “No one’s blaming the president. Is anyone blaming the president?”

And just one hour before this segment, the network’s chyron suggested that Trump bears “responsibility” for “inciting” the perpetrator to send these packages — but alleges the president is not owning up to it.

Although CNN personalities have repeatedly said that they are not blaming Trump or his supporters for the mail bombs, they have emphasized several times that those targeted by the bombs were frequently criticized by Trump and by right-wing media.

Brian Stelter said Wednesday that the targets of the bombs “have all been criticized mercilessly by right-wing outlets.”

CNN analyst Josh Campbell also insisted Wednesday that Trump’s rhetoric may still be to blame for the mail bombs, even if the perpetrator is mentally ill.

“If the package bomber turns out to be someone with mental health issues, that doesn’t mean Pres. Trump is off the hook. If it turns out the bomber was motivated to kill perceived enemies based on recent heated political attacks by officials, those spewing hate share the blame,” he said.

This Is the Best Political Ad of the Year; If the RNC Has Any Guts at All, It Will Air 24/7 Until Nov. 6


Reported By Benjamin Arie | October 21, 2018 at 5:36pm

When it comes to messaging and image, the right can sometimes be a bit reserved and … well, conservative.

You know the stereotype: A well-to-do, soft-spoken man in a suit, going into detail about tax policy. Probably reads a newspaper and nods in agreement to Ted Cruz. There’s nothing wrong with that per se. After all, stereotypical conservatives can seem a bit square because they’re busy doing things, like running businesses, working hard and raising families. Those are far more important than crafting slick political messaging.

Lately, however, the messaging has been writing itself. The right seems to have found its voice and realized that all it takes to connect with people is the truth, told passionately.

You could say that’s one of the reasons Donald Trump won in 2016. Instead of slick Obama-esque messaging, he focused on common-sense talk that got to the truth of the matter. Usually it was blunt, sometimes it was crass, but it rang true — and that, combined with Trump’s unique energy, resonated with voters.

Even the soft-spoken Republican politicians have picked up on this. Cruz has buried the hatchet and is holding joint rallies with Trump. Ex-milquetoast Sen. Lindsey Graham catapulted himself onto the national stage by getting fired up for the truth about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and defending it with passion.

Now a new political ad created by an amateur video editor is getting serious attention for doing essentially the same thing: Shining a light on the truth, and presenting reality in a passionate way.

“We have two choices on November 6th,” the powerful video begins. “The GOP’s America … or the left’s America.”

The video expertly cuts rapidly between two extreme contrasts. On the side of the right, the economy is booming. Unemployment is near record lows, especially for Hispanics and African Americans. On the side of the left, it’s a very different tone. Radical groups like “antifa” literally shut down streets and bash buildings … or people’s faces.

Instead of distancing themselves from this appalling behavior, Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters and Eric Holder all but endorse it with language that excuses violence.

All of this — in the video and in real life — comes down to a simple but vital choice: “Jobs Not Mobs.”

That’s exactly the message the president himself has been pushing.

“The Democrats don’t like being called an angry mob,” Trump said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “But really, that’s what they’ve become.”

“They’ve gone so far left, they don’t know what’s going on. When you listen to Eric Holder talking about kicking … or Hillary Clinton saying what she said … they just don’t see it,” he added.

“They’re losing it,” the president continued. “We should be a unified country.”

The video was shared with the hashtag “#JobsNotMobs!”

“Democrats produce mobs and Republicans produce jobs!” he echoed in a campaign appearance in Montana.

It isn’t clear who exactly created the spot-on “Jobs Not Mobs” political video. It was posted to a YouTube account labeled “TRUMP 2020,” and a user called “JFord1984” posted it on Twitter in response to Trump’s video. It had been watched more than 73,000 times as of Sunday evening.

“If the RNC doesn’t plagiarize this, they deserve to lose,” RedState joked over the weekend.

Here’s a better idea: Figure out who made the video and hire them pronto, Trump. This kind of high-energy messaging is exactly what Republicans need, and it shows that you don’t need empty promises to win elections.

You just need to shine a light on the truth.

Antifa Shut Down Major Intersection, Threaten Citizens with Violence If They Don’t Obey


Reported By Jack Davis | October 8, 2018 at 5:48pm

Antifa protesters holding a vigil for a man shot to death by Portland police made it clear Saturday that they were taking over, and there was no room for anything else but obedience to mob rule.

The raw violence was captured by Brandon Farley, who in his Twitter profile says he captures “disruptive events in downtown Portland, Oregon.”

Warning: the following embedded videos contain strong language.

At one point, protesters blocked off an intersection as though they were the police and refused to let drivers pass.

A woman, asked by a driver why traffic was rerouted, had no time to explain.

“Because I told you to,” she said.

Various videos posted to Twitter show protesters threatening elderly drivers who did not understand what was going on.

Antifa protesters swarmed one car when it did not comply.

“Yeah brother, yeah you little white little f—er,” said one protester. “The First Amendment. Get the f— down the road.”

In the video, he appeared to notice that the car was registered in North Carolina and called the driver a “little white supremacist.”

“Go back to North Carolina where you came from. We don’t need your KKK in Portland, Oregon,” the protester said.

Meanwhile, drivers were frazzled.
“I’m in the middle of the intersection and (the protesters) are blocking traffic,” one confused driver says into his phone.
“We’re not here to riot. We’re here for justice,” said Charles Kimmons, who is related to victim Patrick Kimmons, according to Oregon Live. “We need to fight this all the way to the end. These cops need to be locked up.”

Police have said that Patrick Kimmons was shot at about 3 a.m. on Sept. 30 when police, responding to a call of a shooting, encountered Kimmons, who was armed.

Antifa has been on a rampage in Portland since June, when protesters blocked the offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and neither city officials nor police did anything to help the federal workers targeted.

Cohen’s Lawyer Has 1 Shot on Live TV, Accidentally Sends People to Trump’s Website


Reported By Jared Harris | August 22, 2018 at 5:39pm

Editor’s Note: Fox News reported that the website mentioned by Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, directed users to President Donald Trump’s campaign website. However, it now redirects visitors to a GoFundMe page for President Trump’s border wall. 

Lanny Davis is not having a good day.

On top of having to convince people his client Michael Cohen is ‘committed’ to the truth, he was apparently also tasked with raising his own paycheck.

On Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Lanny preached Cohen’s love of everything true. “He’s committed to telling the truth.”

“We’ve actually set up a website with the name ‘truth’ in it, called michaelcohentruth.com, and he’s looking for help from people who want to give donations to help him uh… tell the truth.”

There’s only one problem. Typing michaelcohentruth.com in your browser takes you to a GoFundMe page for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

Better not cash that paycheck just yet, Lanny.

Watch the latest video at <a href=”http://www.foxnews.com”>foxnews.com</a><br />

Where did it all go so wrong?

Lanny did the math. Fox has a huge number of viewers, so it would be a perfect place to promote the website. With possibly millions watching, what could go wrong?

Lanny gave a typical lawyer interview and was a courteous professional. Everybody wants to donate to those guys.

But despite doing everything right, our lovable lawyer failed to take a crucial step: visiting the website you’re planning to promote.

It’s a deceptively simple concept, one that 7 years at Yale never prepared him for.

Nobody noticed the website despite it being mentioned twice, and it was not corrected in the interview.

Before the questions get a little more aggressive and Lanny gets a little more frustrated, he was able to get one more confusing jab in.

“When Rudy Giuliani says ‘truth isn’t truth,’ you just heard Donald Trump reverse truth and make it into a falsehood.”

“It’s classic,” Lanny said, shaking his head with a chuckle. “Classic.”

You got that one right, Lanny.

Watch: Woman Lifts Table, Rips Fliers, Dances and Screams at Conservative Students


Reported By Benjamin Arie | June 6, 2018 at 3:23pm

Nothing says “enlightened and tolerant” quite like assault and property destruction. A liberal university student was caught on camera committing both, after she was “triggered” by conservative students telling the truth about socialism.

During an event held at Santa Clara University, the conservative group Turning Point USA hosted a peaceful anti-socialist demonstration. According to Campus Reform, local students held an event  May 31 that recognized the millions of innocent people killed under socialist and communist regimes. 

Estimates vary, but the death toll from far-left governments is believed to be in the tens of millions, if not more. 

The Black Book of Communism, published by Harvard University, estimates a death toll of near 100 million from communism and socialism, with the Soviet Union and China responsible for the most atrocities.

One liberal, however, couldn’t handle being calmly presented with facts.

“Incensed by the display, an outraged individual approached the TPUSA students as they were tabling nearby, ripping up their anti-socialist posters and calling them ‘a bunch of f—ing Trump supporters,” reported Campus Reform.

The tirade was also captured on video.

“(T)he student was seen standing close to the student organizers and ripping one of the event posters that was taped to their table. The activist also vocally defended some socialist governments, and criticized capitalist exploitation of poor nations,” the outlet reported.voting democrat

Apparently destroying someone else’s property is completely fine as long as you claim to stand with the poor, while ignoring the appalling poverty of socialist nations like Venezuela.

The radical liberal’s rant became even more physical.

“In addition to her verbal tirade, the instigator also allegedly attempted to flip over the chapter’s table in the direction of several student members and slap the phone of TPUSA chapter president Rhaaghav Kanodia out of his hand,” Campus Reform stated.Hate-Zone-NRD-600

When a military cadet with a college ROTC group tried to talk to the woman, she insulted his uniform and declared it was only used “to shoot brown people.” Classy.

For their part, the conservative students kept their cool.

“According to the video obtained by Campus Reform, as well as eyewitness testimony, not a single member of the TPUSA chapter physically confronted the instigator. Instead, the students calmly attempted to hold a conversation with the activist before asking her to leave the area,” that outlet reported. 

“When the chapter president asked the woman to ‘please be respectful or leave,’ the instigator told him to ‘sit your a– down’ and ‘shut the f— up,’ according to witnesses. The woman ultimately fled the area when campus security approached the scene.”point counterpoint

Student members of Turning Point USA expressed frustration that even when presented with evidence, campus officials do almost nothing to protect conservative free speech or hold out-of-control leftists accountable for their actions.

The ability to deal with uncomfortable information, and to calmly debate a topic of disagreement, is the hallmark of an adult, educated person.

Increasingly, it looks like liberal college students are graduating with paper degrees, but almost no tolerance for other people or diverse views.
